Alexander Farquharson

???? - 1821


Jamaica slave-owner, co-owner with Alexander Glennie (q.v.), almost certainly his cousin, of Job's Hill in St Mary Jamaica until his death in 1821.

  1. 21 [September 1821] in the island of Jamaica [death of] Alexander Farquharson Esq. of Jobshill.

It is not clear how this man was connected to the owner of Job's Hill dying in 1821.
